Russell Westbrook AppearancesOklahoma City Thunder All Star point guard Russell Westbrook added some star power to a local non-profit, Saturday night. Westbrook hosted a fundraiser for the Needs Foundation, which gives un-served food from local restaurants to hungry families in the metro area.

“This is a huge part of what I’m interested in, you know me personally. And just trying to keep it going with us playing basketball, I think it’s really important for us to give back,” said Westbrook. Saturday night’s private event was at the former Governors Mansion on North McKinley. There was a live auction that included a Thunder jersey signed by Westbrook.

Westbrook has had a busy summer with appearances, charity events, basketball camps as well as winning a gold medal in the London 2012 Summer Olympics. He hopes this is the year for the Thunder as their core nucleus of Kevin Durant, James Harden have been playing together for the past three seasons, coming close to that NBA title. They will have to battle past the revamped Los Angeles Lakers in the west. A two time All Star, Westbrook has been a leader on and off the court. Expect big things from him once again this season!
